What's Inside

We explore US mall closures in the context of the coronavirus crisis. Considering the impact of Covid-19 on mall consolidation, we discuss the following key topics:

  • Coresight Research estimates for mall closures in the next five years—and the level of risk posed to malls by classification
  • How department store and other anchor store closures are exacerbating the challenges faced by mall owners
  • The influence of tenant mix on near-term vulnerability—and the ways in which malls can alter their mix to become more robust in the current environment, such as by repurposing space into fulfillment centers and tapping health-care and grocery retail.
